  • Time Out Chicago

    The sweet-lobster cocktail satiates two, the juicy prime rib comes in a hefty portion, and desserts are so enormous that servers cut them in two, wrapping half in a take-away bag, no questions asked. Read more

    You will always have an excellent dining experience!

  • Time Out Chicago

    The $50 porterhouse is impeccably seasoned & boasts warm layers of sumptuous fat running through full-flavored meat. The only problem is that for $50, it's kind of small. Read more

    Where's Ruxon?

  • Crain's Chicago Business

    The lunch menu is wide-ranging in price and variety, so you can taste that prime Angus beef and luxurious seafood without spending $35 to $50 for an enormous steak or $77 for a lobster tail. Read more

    Crabmeat avocado salad, lobster salad, oysters & shrimp! Great place for some appetizers, bubbly & people watching :-)

    The portions are huge, so plan to share every course, including sides (the two-pound double baked potato is a signature) and desserts. Read more

    Luckily got to enjoy their 20th anniversary with prices from 1989. What a bargain and a great place to sit outside!

    Once again I'm drawn to bars with a bartender named Joe... One of the all time best. oh, the bone in filet is money

  • Kathryn J.

    Go for the oysters (special now: 13 for $13) -- but add the lump crab/avocado, and... smile.

    Desserts here are huge, literally bigger than your head.

    Gibsons is the ultimate Chicago steakhouse. They have their own grade of beef and it is really good. Steak, Lettuce Wedge, Martini's and (pun intended) "herds" of men.

    Joe's such a wonderful bartender and makes the best lemon head drink...It's like a candy alcohol. Yum! What a treat!

  • Chicago magazine

    This magnet attracts scenesters who like their meat prime and martinis huge. For those who prefer their beef on the bone, there are T-bones and NY strips, but if price matters, look to the meat loaf. Read more

    They actually have delicious fish dishes here, give one a try!

    Beth Wanless · November 10, 2011

    A classic. Lobster tails here can go 20oz.

    Order a dirty martini at the bar and watch the mougars circle. Interesting sociological experiment.

    You must order the W.R. Chicago Cut

    In case you don't eat meat or fish, they try to get you a good alternative. Great atmosphere!

    Andy was our waiter. He made our anniversary meal special. As always, the steak was fantastic!!

    My husband and I split an appetizer, steak, and dessert. We both left stuffed and swore to go again next time we're in town.

    By far, Gibson's offers Chicago's best steak selections. Also, Gibson's wine selection is very expansive and affordable -- by the glass and by the bottle. A must-go if you're in Chicago!!!

    Classic Chicago establishment. Perfect place to go on a rainy day, order a glass of cab and their peppercorn steak salad. Friendly delightful staff :)

    The best steakhouse in Chicago. Meat is cooked and flavored to perfection. The crab avocado appetizer is delicious. Next time I need to leave room for cake because it looks amazing.

  • Global H.

    The burger was very good here (if you are looking for something lighter than a steak). Be aware that the desserts are massive here.

    This bustling steakhouse and bar— with its USDA prime steaks, oysters on the half shell and oversized desserts—has been a Rush Street fixture since 1989. Read more

    Food was amazing & so was the service! The macadamia turtle pie is massive but so worth it!

    One of the best steaks you will ever eat in your life. Go for the New York cut

    Jolyon Hunter · February 21, 2014
  • Radim S.

    Make sure you wear a fur indoor in winter and at least a warm sweatshirt in summer, because this place is heavily air-conditioned!

    Best bar ever. Every night.

    Best lobster I've ever had! It's Australian lobster and it's just the sweetest lobster ever!

    Always busy for a reason: attentive service, excellent steaks and sides; portions are ridiculously huge

    we split the porterhouse and mashed potatoes. Perfect for two people and the best steak I've ever had in my life.

    You can order from the Hugo's menu at Gibson's and vice versa since they share a kitchen.

    Anthony Handley · March 2, 2013

    Get the filet sliders and lobster bisque soup.

    What a place...5*

    The drinks are good, the steaks are excellent, but the desserts are the real stars here. Be warned: they're also humongous.

    Jake Smith · August 31, 2012
  • Anastasia B.

    If you are eating next door at the Hugo Frog, you can always ask for the Gibson's menu.

    Anastasia Belozertseva · June 16, 2012
  • Jack B.

    Bloodies are the best

    Jack Breisacher · May 13, 2012
  • Christine S.

    The sliced strip steak is the best deal on the menu!
